About Me
Although, I have more than twenty years of genealogical research experience (family trees, lineage society applications, photographing and cataloging gravestones, personal family tree pages), since my retirement three years ago, I now am able to devote the necessary time to that calling and to developing as a professional genealogist.
More recently, with the availability of genetic testing, I have also been involved with DNA analysis and have taken a number of advanced DNA courses.
